Imagine if you can, that there is something else that you could tap into for positive responses to your requests, prayers, wishes? Now imagine that you have already received what you have asked for. Wouldn’t you at least say; Thank You?
Imagine still, that it wouldn’t make any difference what mood you were in or how you were feeling when you were doing the asking?. All you simply had to do was ask once, from your heart. No begging, pleading, bargaining or tears were involved. You merely take a moment before you make the request, and really take some time to properly get all the words lined up so that whomever or whatever is listening will know exactly, very specifically what it is that you want.
Here are a few examples of not quite, well thought out appeals:
- I want to be healthy.
- I need a job.
- Would you send me a partner?
If I had only one shot at asking for what I wanted, using the above three examples, they would sound like this.
- I want to be healthy in body, mind and spirit in the now. Thank You!
- I need a job that fuels my own passions and expands my talents in ways I never thought possible and I would like at least a six figure salary or payment, and please let me recognize it when it comes in the now. Thank You!
- Would you give me a partner, now that I know what it is that I need in one, that would be in their thirties, well adjusted, empathetic, healthy, funny, attractive to me and attracted to me, with financial security and most of all, let me recognize them when I see them in the now. Thank You
There is a universe that has no emotions, no agenda and doesn’t judge or dislike anything or anybody. It also doesn’t hold to our concept of time (hence the words “in the now”.) It’s just there waiting for our requests. Suspend your mind and your beliefs, and know that this is nothing new, but perhaps edited a bit simpler so that more people can easily understand and access it. No books by Tony Robbins, or Ted Talks or the hundreds that write it in self-help books and lectures saying the exact same thing, but usually in three hundred pages or more.
It is the practice of bringing in the moment what one needs, and “as if” you already have received it. This is what I learned from this practice. It may or may not come in the time slot that you have asked for. It will hear you and might place you somewhere where you would not suspect that you would ever visit, much less live. It may not come in the guise or appearance that you would expect. It may need to shake up your life, habits, beliefs etc.. Many times things may have to change in us to accommodate it. That’s the price that you must be willing to pay. My teacher often warned us to be careful for what we asked for, for she would give it to us, pretending not to know that we were just pretending. Sage advice, I think.
